Put the hourglass on its side;
Waiting, watching, passing time.
We’re so focused on this life,
We don’t notice changing tides.
Grain by grain the time goes by;
Never stops for you and I.
Why don’t we just live a lie?
Just sit down and wait to die.
Is there more on another side?
A place where we can be alive…
A place where we can sit and cry…
Somewhere to go to safely hide…
Take us there so we can find,
Life without pain and pride,
Where dark is overcome by light.
Take us there,
We’re on your side.
Open our eyes.
